Looking to add a Salmon Faverolles Rooster to my flock of 15 Chickens. I have not had a rooster yet and this seems like a friendly & Beautiful addition.. I have 3 silkies that are only 2 weeks old at the moment, so I currently can not sex them. 1 does seem to be a little different than the other 2... If one ends up being a rooster, I wonder if it would be ok to have to two roosters together as there would be a total of 14 hens. Any thoughts or experience with a silkie rooster getting along with another?

They will fight and crow all the time. I'd play it safe and wait to see if any of them are Hes. Post some pictures so that we can possibly see if they they might be boys. In my experience, 1 roo is enough!

That was my thoughts too. I didn't want to wait weeks to find out if they are male or female. But it is probably be best if I did lol. Here are my 3 Silkies, 2 weeks old.

The first one has lighter legs than the other 2. The last one has had an issue with pastybutt so its butt is a little bare.
